Parallel Claims and Proceedings in Investment Arbitrations

Part of Hamburg International Arbitration Days, Latham partners will provide strategic insights based on their extensive experience in investment arbitration during this panel discussion.


The prosecution of parallel claims has become an increasingly common feature of investment arbitration. It can present unique challenges and produce paradoxical results. The existence of umbrella clauses or multi-layer shareholder structures adds further complexity. Our panel will discuss various discrete aspects of parallel claims and will canvass recent developments designed to mitigate the risk of inconsistent decisions. The panelists will provide a number of strategic insights based on their extensive experience in investment arbitration.

This event is part of Hamburg International Arbitration Days, an online event taking place from 22 to 24 March 2021. For more information about further events, please visit Dispute Resolution Hamburg and Law-School.
